Privacy Policy

This privacy policy sets out how Lewis Hollings Ltd (domain: lewishollings.com) uses and protects information that you give when you use this website, or contact us, or engage with us.

We want to assure you that we do not, have never and will never sell, rent, trade or gift your personal information to anything, anyone or any business, especially for marketing purposes.

In this Privacy Policy, we’ve provided lots of detailed information on what personal information we might collect, how we may use it, what limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others, and how we keep it secure. So if you are sitting comfortably, we’ll continue.

Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information means any information that you give us that may be used to identify you, this includes, but is not limited to: your email address, name, phone number and or any unusual hobbies & interests. It also includes any photograph you attached to your CV, which you really shouldn’t.

We do at times mail-out job opportunities, market information, job search tips, recruitment commentary and a few bits of information on the charity events we undertake. If you wish to receive these updates and don’t currently, please let us know. Likewise, if you no longer wish to receive these updates, please let us know.

CVs/Resumes/Executive Profiles
CVs are our business. They are really quite important to us. If you want us to consider you for a job, we’ll need you to send us yours, and that CV will (or should…) contain most of the personal information we’ve mentioned above.

If you send your CV to us by email to a ….@lewishollings.com address, or through our website, it will be handled securely and sensitively. All the above promises and conditions will be upheld. We will hold and use your personal information, for our legitimate business purposes only including:

  1. to provide our services to you;
  2. to maintain our business relationship, where you are a client or candidate;
  3. to enable you to submit your CV for general applications, to apply for specific jobs or to subscribe to our job alerts.
  4. to match your details with job vacancies, to assist us in finding a position that is most suitable for you and to send your personal information (including sensitive personal information) to clients in order to apply for jobs;
  5. to retain your details and notify you about future job opportunities other than the specific role for which you have contacted us;
  6. to answer your enquiries;
  7. to direct-market products and services, advise you of news and industry updates, events, promotions and competitions, reports and other information. Before we do so, you will be given an option to opt-out of such communications and an option to unsubscribe will also be provided with each communication;
  8. to fulfil contractual obligations with our clients;
  9. to provide further services to you by sharing your personal information with other companies within our Group of companies as well as trusted third parties

Your CV, and any information therein, will never (never, never ever) be sent to anyone else without your knowledge and agreement.

If your CV is presented to a client, whether in person, via email or via carrier pigeon, you’ll know about it, know about the role, the business, the contact in the business and even then, he/she will be subject to confidentiality.

If we suggest sending your CV outside of a formal shortlist, for whatever reason, we will gain your explicit permission before doing so. Even then, if we send your CV in either of the above circumstances (and there are no other circumstance we would send your CV), we will remove ALL your personal information except your name.
